Houstonians: 1 Year


May 3rd marks one year in Houston. A year ago, we were just getting into town with (barely) enough time to make it to the first of what turned out to be 7820364810837 open houses. Give or take a hundred.

A year ago, we were both embarrassingly sad that we left our favorite pillows at the last hotel we stayed in during our glamorous 8 hour stop over in Lubbock.

A year ago, we didn't quite remember what the Houston humidity was really like. Now, I don't think we will ever forget this.

A year ago, all our belongings were either in a car or a storage pod. Neither were particularly well packed.

A year ago, we were living out of 1 suitcase each. Our naivete believed that we would find a house, buy a house, and move into a house before too long- so we didn't pack very well.

A year ago, I had no job! I'd just quit one that I'd loved, was doing a little freelance work, and was in the middle of 7 job interviews to get the job that I love now.

A year ago, we were one day away from going to our first Kickball game. A group of awesome new people that have become our go-tos and are so grateful for.

A year ago, we were tired, and scared, and had no idea what was to come.

I'm so grateful that we took the leap back to (at times what felt like the kiddie pond) home. Houston really is an awesome place to live, work, and play. I can't wait for another year.

No longer Cross Country Kulhas,


  1. It's amazing how much can change in just a year! Congratulations on your first year in Houston :) Hope the next year is just as good!

  2. I can't believe it has already been a whole year!! You guys have definitely come a long way. Congrats!
